At our church we are looking to upgrade our projectors. Right now, they are 65' back and the stained glass windows wash everything out....really bad. It is a 4000 lumens projector(x2). We are looking at doing a rear screen projector so that we don't have to spend $20k each on a projector that will work 65' away. The screens are 7x10. We would like 16:9 aspic ratio and 1080p is not needed. What would work best for us?


Cliffs:

1. Location: Church

2. Current: Projectors 65' away, windows wash it out.

3. Needed: rear screen projector less than $10k each.


Thanks in advance

We need to know exactly how big the screens need to be and how much space you have behind the screens for projection. Without all those details, we cannot tell exactly what will work for you.


The Canon REALiS WUX10 projector might work in combination with a Day-Lite DA-150 133" diagonal rear projection screen. 65" by 116" = 133" diagonal


SEE:

Requires 14' of space behind the projector, or less if you use a mirror.


Da-Lite DA-150 screen is "a neutral gray screen offering an on-axis gain of 1.5, the DA-150 is a surface well suited for applications whose viewing angles are not large but which can benefit from moderate screen gain."


See: http://www.dalite.com/products/produ...cID=10&pID=109


You should not use a screen gain higher than 1.5 to avoid too narrow a field of view.

IB,

I really appreciate the help. There were talks of using a mirror and I don't see any problem with it. We would need the screen to be as big as we are currently using which is 7'x10'. As far as space behind the screen, the mirror came into play because of the wall behind is a double wall. so we spoke about building it out or putting them in the two corners and placing the projector in the corner and using the mirror. this also would help with the wash out by the windows.


Thanks agian!

You say you want 16:9 aspect ratio, which 10 by 7 is not. 10' wide by 5.625' tall would be 16:9, or 120" by 67.5". So the stock Day-Lite 116" by 65" (133" diagonal) screen would almost give you the 10 foot width you desire. They will custom make any size you wish within realistic limits.
